The Waggon Inn, Higham Dykes, Milbourne, Newcastle Upon Tyne, NE20 0DH. Tel:01661 881872.

The Waggon Inn sits almost on its own just by the side of the road between Ponteland and Belsay near the village of Milbourne.
Funny, I used to keep a 1956 Buick Coupe at a farm near here and used it for many summer runs up the coast. It had a bench seat in the front and the boss always said she could have brought the ironing board and done a spot of ironing in the front on the way up to Alnmouth. It was huge. Happy days.

The Waggon Inn is a homely, friendly and attractive country pub and restaurant. So Cask Task had a meal in there and very nice it was too.
A pint of well kept Jarrow Bitter went down well although the others were also tempting. Wylam Gold Tankard and Tetleys Cask made up the three real ales. Very nice.
If you are ever up that way I'm sure you'll get a tasty meal and a good pint of real ale there.
I know I did!
